Between these two points, much of what the player is able to do, explore, purchase and complete remains largely static. Completion of this stage (and therefore moving into Stage 6) will lead to numerous changes taking place and new content becoming accessible.
- Before starting the Quest Honor and Treachery, a dead Cockatrice can be found just to the north of the large bridge, north-west of Gran Soren.
- On completion of the Quest Honor and Treachery, a Cockatrice will spawn at Leaper's Ledge in Soulflayer Canyon.
- After starting the Quest Honor and Treachery, if the Quest Chasing Shadows was earlier completed, Madeleine will no longer be available as a vendor, and will leave Gransys following the completion of the Quest Bad Business, only returning in Post-Game.
- Caxton's Armory, Madeleine's Shop, Jayce, Alon, Mathias and Barroch all receive additional stock to what they sold in Stage 4.
